The mail has been good to me this week, and
I don't even have my fall Intrigues package yet.
The theme for this month's Year of Enchantment
swap was mice. I think they are really cute when they
are not the live kind. And my partner, Kerry, at talesofaneedleandthread.blogspot.com (who is
also a participant in our fall basket swap) made up the
cutest little non-live mice ever! I am feeling very spoiled
and loved. Not only did she make up these adorable spool
mice, (with wonderful trims wrapped around, but also a
pincushion, and two mice ornaments, she also sent
me two, yes I said two of these wonderful fall scarecrow
tassels handmade by herself. I love them all and was so
thrilled to get the package. Thankyou Kerry!
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
